    The war of 1971 was in full sing. Pakistan decided to attack shakkargarh so that Kashmir was cut off from rest of India. Indians decided to cross the river of Basantar and created a bridgehead. Soldiers were clearing the landmines when 14 Pak tanks attacked.
    3 Indian tanks decided to fight despite being outnumbered. Lt Arun Khetarpal had manned one of those tanks.
    Rest they say is history...

    There's a documentary which will be aired tonight.
